Christine in Seattle asks if it is a good idea for her to try evening primrose oil for her
pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) that seems to be affecting her relationship with her husband.
Indeed, PMS can be a major issue for couples. Many men still do not realize what it means and how they need to be more understanding during this period.
